With the weather warming up (despite the rain!) it might be time to consider setting aside your thick, matte winter foundation for a lighter option.
A tinted moisturiser, BB, CC or even DD cream are all worth considering for their moisturising effects, dewy, youth-boosting texture and, in many cases, added SPF protection.
While Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturiser is pricey at £34, a little of this light product goes a long way. It's perfect if you just want a touch of colour and a fresh-faced look, plus it's designed to protect your skin from free radical damage and boasts SPF20 so it's great for sunny days. In areas where you might want a little more coverage - on any blemishes or under-eye shadows, for example - you can either blend it on the back of your hand with a foundation, or use a brightening concealer.
There are 15 shades to choose from so you should easily find the perfect, brightening colour for your complexion.
